August 17 - August 18
At a crucial time when the United States Department of Defense plan to at least $636 million on Counter-UAS research and development and at least $75 million on C-UAS procurement in 2022, the IDGA Counter-UAS Summit will bring together senior decision-makers from the Armed Services, Federal Agencies and the DoD to discuss key challenges, requirements and procurement programs.
The rapid proliferation of UAS has been one of the most unsettling tactical advancements on the battlefield in recent years. Not least because of asymmetric engagement whereby the United States’ traditional air superiority is being challenged by non-state actors and adversaries. However, the use of UAS transcends the battlefield. Indeed, the ease of acquiring UAS means that key decision-makers are grappling with the question of how UAS can be integrated into the National Airspace System (NAS) for beneficial purposes while mitigating the risk of the nefarious employment of UAS.
To combat this threat while simultaneously staying ahead of the curve, cooperation and innovation will be vital and this conference seeks to ensure that thought leaders can confront some of these key questions and together, bolster the security of the US and its allies.
IDGA’s Counter-UAS Summit will provide you the unique opportunity to network, connect, and learn from thought leaders and practitioners in this space.
We look forward to welcoming you at the Counter-UAS Summit 2022 in Washington, DC!
